Ed,

It is amazing how much more I am tuned in to any kind of cancer, and also more aware of the effect it has on family and loved ones.

My condolences to you and your family as well. I guess the only good thing we can say is that the suffering for her is over.

I'm so sorry. It's especially sad for someone who is too young for this, and a young relative yet.
